ECtHR issues warning to Lord Judge, etc

ECtHR issues warning to Lord Judge, etc

The European Court of Human Rights is to step up its monitoring role of Member States, like the UK, which fail to incorporate the Court's case law in national legislation.

"One of the key issues for the future development of a human rights platform is how we ensure that national judicial authorities adopt the Convention in their national legal systems, so that when the court makes a judgment they will be obliged to adopt it in domestic case law".

Incidentally, the ECtHR is also to get a new website at the cost of €350,000.
